Annetta Ribken is an award-winning editor of indie authors — and only indie authors. We discuss what editing is, why writers need editing, and why having a few beta readers is not the same thing.
While she highly recommends working with an editor (and we discuss why on the podcast), she does offer a course called “Content Editing with Netta” that you may want to check out.
HIGHLY recommended by Diane, Hannah, and Annetta: Self-Editing for Fiction Writers, Second Edition: How to Edit Yourself Into Print by Renni Browne and Dave King
You can read the list of some words that Diane checks over when self-copy-editing.
